Indulge your taste buds with organic, plant-based global cuisine.
Incite your spirit as you explore the lush beauty of Nicaragua.
Take a peek inside an active volcano, zip line through the jungle, roam the streets of colonial Granada, hit the beach in the country’s surf capital, visit local coffee plantations, or simply relax and swim in Apoyo Lagoon - a volcanic crater lake right outside your door.

Where we will be staying?
Apoyo Lodge is a boutique health and wellness retreat space overlooking the beautiful Apoyo Lagoon in rural Nicaragua. They are on a quest to get everyone in the world moving their body and host events and retreats that allow people to find exercise that works for them. Their expertise in crafting meals, experiences, and spaces perfect for a sweaty holiday is exactly why we chose them. Follow them on instagram or check out their website here.
What are we going to do each day?
Each day is beautifully balanced. Some intelligent, sweat-inducing fun with some well-deserved relaxation. Some group activities with lots of space to do your own thing. We believe in choice, so each day you get to select from a number of optional activities. Oh - and we eat really good food. That was a major requirement.

I still have questions. Who can I talk to?
